  • Please email us with your order number before returning your shoes. We'll then email you with information on how to organize your return.
  • International online customers: Shoes must arrive back within 42 days of the purchase date.
  • Items must be returned in their new unworn condition
  • Any marks on the outsoles will void the exchange. Please test the shoes only on clean carpet to avoid marking the outsoles of the shoes and creases in the leather.
  • Any major creases in the leather will void the exchange. You can prevent this from occurring by ensuring that the laces are loose before placing your feet inside, by using a shoehorn, and by not bending the shoes forward too much when walking. Forcing your feet into the shoes will cause the leather to crease.
  • Once an exchange is issued, refunds are no longer accepted.
  • Special requests for a custom-made orders must only be written in the comments at the time of purchase, additional requests given via emails during production may not be used.
  • A restocking fee of 50USD may be applied for certain returns ie. heavy boots, 4 inch, 5 inch, unique orders, canceled orders , incorrect colour selected and for first-time customers of elevator shoes. No return shipping is offered
  • Cancellation of custom-made and regular orders during production, after completion, upon dispatch, during transit will result in a 50% refund.
  • Cancellation of express order requests will result in a 100 USD Charge. Min production time is 4 working days (shipping times can vary)
  • ON-SALE (On sale section within the app) Shoes are nonrefundable. Bespoke orders are un-refundable
  • Please note: I often work with individual leathers , If you request a style found in the production notes please remember the image could be up to 7 years old. I can only make a close match as possible from the leathers available to me, importing skins from across the world is unfeasible for a 200USD shoe, in other words, no shoe I make is ever 100% the same.
  • Parcels abandoned/uncollected and returned to the incorrect address may well be destroyed and no refund issued, Parcels uncollected by Airmail will be resent if returned to our factory. 
  • Lastly: If you become a regular customer of the Don, then you can expect some nice deals along the way ;)
